and the answer, quit simply, is because he wants higher taxes. >> reporter: we'll see what sort of alternative proposals will get traction this week. the president's plan to sort of replace some of these spending cuts with closing tax loopholes and there by getting more revenue to go toward deficit reduction, that is a nonstarter with many republicans. there is also a proposal floating around here that would allow the fed rag agencies a little more flexibility in where they apply those budget cuts. right now, the sequestration says it has to go into every single line item, same amount, every wray, no discretion involved in that. perhaps a little bit more flexibility may soften the blow with some of these more critical missions. thank you for that report. >> argo won best picture at the academy awards last 199as you know. today, two hostages from the iran crisis will object capitol hill. ben affleck's movie has regenerated interest in the events surrounding the 1979

question. half allow to you ask that question if you are an employer. these are big issues that the government has to el deal with state by state. >> we have a bunch. questions. we'll get to as men as we k the first question comes from deborah wimberly. she writes i would like to ask how to reverse diabetes and lower cholesterol. >> one of the most common questions. we have a show tomorrow that is addressing allegations that the big food industry has purposely crowated foods that are addictive to us, that create the sugar blitz. they create that by adding sugar, salt and fatted to our foods. i think there is an interesting debate about whether we need to be cautious and aware that some foods will draw us? >> i attest to that because there are certain foods that once i start, i can't stop. >> losing weight will help with both of those conditions. a lot of people are deficient

coffee bean extract. very effective. >> leslie writes in, my fiancee suffers tremendously from ibs, irritable bowel syndrome and has tried many product to get help without success. i would love to have him be without pain and without fear of having a rest room close by. this is a problem you hear more and more about. >> this comes back. why is it we have so many chronic problems from autism to irritable bowel syndrome and everything in between. there is a big difference in the food we are eating. i would start off with some type of an elimination diet getting rid of dairy product and wheat products. that seems to help a lot people who have irritable bowel. but i would go one step further since this gentleman sebbed or nation. a lot of times folks come back from the battlefields with a lot of post traumatic stress disorder. it is a big risk factor for irritable bowel. your gut and brawn are
intimately connected. -- your gut and brain are intimately connected. when you have anxiety, it will manifest itself with irritable bowel. having an ability to cope with that has been shown to be effective. that is why, either through medical they were you or just talk therapy, there are ways of getting people past that moment in their life. >> initially, eliminate the dairy and the gluten products. >> not by eating gluten-free product. eliminate the wheat itself. if you want to have dairy, don't drink skim milk. there is no benefit. you take the fat out of milk, you are left with sugar. skim milk does not help you lose weight. quite the contrary. >> another question. i am looking for something that won't dry my lips and give it moisture and gloss. so far, i'm biting the skin off
